Sacha Baron Cohen Fools Republicans Into Filming Ad About Arming Toddlers

  • Sacha Baron Cohen arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills Calif. Cohen stars in the new Show

Actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has been teasing his new series with Showtime for nearly two weeks now.

Later on, the character goes on to speak to a gun lobbyist about giving arms to children to protect themselves. That's the question you'll continually ask yourself watching this ten minute preview of Sacha Baron Cohen's new show 'Who Is America?'. "In less than a month - less than a month - a first-grader can become a first grenade-er". Already critics are saying it's just as hilariously irreverent and provocative as anything we should expect from Cohen, as he dons several new personas and unleashes them on prominent figures of the political scene. "He started showing me these graphs and statistics that had, like, typos in them and just didn't quite look right, and part of this propaganda, this data that he was showing me, had something to do with sex changes and transgenderism, and he brought up Chelsea Clinton and said she was a recipient of a government-funded sex change", she recalled.

Rep. Joe Wilson of SC also chimed in, saying "A three-year-old can not defend itself from an assault rifle by throwing a Hello Kitty pencil case at it", and adding that "our founding fathers do not put an age limit on the second amendment".

Pratt continued: "The science behind this program is proven". "This allows nerve reflexes to travel along the Cardi B neural pathway to the Wiz Khalifa 40% faster".

The clip ends with an adjustment of the expression that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Somehow only ascendant Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, a star of the far right and large-headed living embodiment of the Florida Man meme, refused to endorse Baron Cohen's proposal-not because he recognized how ridiculous it was but because he didn't have enough information on it yet.

The first episode of WHO IS AMERICA? is available now on Showtime.

Former vice presidential nominee and ex-Alaska governor Sarah Palin will also feature in the series, admitting on Wednesday she was duped into an interview with Baron Cohen who was disguised as a disabled United States veteran.

DailyMail.com has been told by a source that it was the American Programs Bureau that presented this opportunity to Palin, the same group who manages the likes of Larry King, Sean "P Diddy" Combs, Sir Richard Branson and Mikhail Gorbachev, to name a few.

Former vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin and Republican nominee Roy Moore have also revealed they were targeted by the comedian for a forthcoming episode, along with Bernie Sanders.

Cohen released a teaser clip showing former vice president Dick Cheney, signing a "waterboard kit", which Cheney does with a smile and says, "that's the first time I ever signed a waterboard".
